'Will' Shekhar return to Hindi movies?

Saturday, May 28, 2016

The westernised London-based Bollywood film-maker Shekhar Kapur evidently, still has his Indian roots firmly in place. The bearded Kapur has interviewed the Southside humanitarian spiritual leader ‘Amma’ Srimata Amritanandamayidevi, that too in her distant ‘ashram’ in Kerala for a 50 min documentary ‘directed’ by him. It’s called ‘The Science of Compassion’.

Did the ‘Masoom’ director instantly agree when this docu was offered to him? “The only condition was that I should get to converse as one-on-one with ‘Amma’ herself,” smiles the Kapur, who confides that he “did not accept any fees” for this devotional docu-venture. Did he get to witness any miracles? “It’s incorrect to expect dramatic miracles. Our own breathing and the entire cosmic system moving in harmony, isn’t that a miracle.

And then ‘Amma’ non-stop embracing thousands of devotees, one at a time, is in itself a ‘miracle’. With those spiritual vibrations, that one derives, it was an enlightening experience,” insists the ‘Bandit Queen’ director, who is currently busy with his next UK based TV series outing ‘Will’ based on the youth phase of legendary playwright, William Shakespeare.

Would he sneak out from his ‘sabbatical’ to hop onto the Bollywood bandwagon? “Definitely, I am game to be associated with Hindi movies, also the ''Mr. India'' sequel, provided I get rights as also the total creative freedom. Unfortunately, ''Paani'' was stalled, as there were creative differences with the production house.2

But then, one should never say never,” signs off, the articulate Shekhar.
